Busy Philipps won’t back down when it comes to fighting for reproductive rights.

The “Freaks and Geeks” actress has spoken openly about her own abortion at age 15, and in the wake of Roe v. Wade’s reversal in June, she was arrested while protesting for abortion rights outside the Supreme Court — a tradeoff she tells Page Six Style was “kind of a no-brainer.”

“It was an act of civil disobedience, and it was the first time that Planned Parenthood has had a planned act of civil disobedience in their history,” Philipps says.

“And part of the reason why, obviously, is because of the Dobbs decision and what is now happening, what’s on the line. And just to keep people paying attention; you have to show up and demand that people continue to pay attention.”
